Does Caldwell not get in the tournament with a win? They must be looking at him as an easy win.

Gaethje got this! But that's actually a really cool tournament Newell, Gaethje, Lauzon and Griffin/JZ is sweet and I'm excited to hopefully see Mutapcic become a star in the MW tournament. one of the brightest prospects at MW in the world.
